What I hate about my digital scale is that it is not reliable. Like today, I stepped on it 6 times in a row and these were my readings:
-192.0
-192.0
-193.6
-192.8
-192.8

The variation isn't too wide, but when you are counting on it to detect small losses, it is annoying. I usually just pick one of the readings in the middle that came up more than once (the 192.8 in this example) to be my weigh-in number. Do the scales being recommended give you a consistent weight every time you stand on it, or is it normal for scales to be just a little unreliable?
